New super-hub to boost Amethyst’s capacity by 40%

Third party logistics firm Amethyst Group is set to increase its capacity by over 40 per cent thanks to the development of a new super-hub.

A premium addition to its existing portfolio of warehouses, the super-hub is a multi-million pound investment that will encompass over 40,000 pallet positions, a three tier Mezzanine and state of the art systems.

“Very few companies offer a ‘one stop solution’ within the multi-channel industry,” Allan Fosbrook, business development manager at Amethyst Group, told ToyNews.

“Our capacity will increase by over 40 per cent, providing a greater depth of services and will enable us to continue to expand our well established client base within the toy, nursery, consumer and fashion divisions.”

Amethyst managing director, Naresh Patel, added: “We’ve had a great 2016; the business has grown significantly.

“Allan Fosbrook returned to Amethyst in January to lead our business development team and has introduced several new customers to our toy and nursery client base. Space is at a premium and hence the super-hub will greatly increase our footprint.”

The firm’s new super-hub will be located in central Warwickshire, in close proximity to motorway networks, major parcel carrier hubs and the ‘Golden Triangle’.

Fosbrook continued: “This will provide additional capacity for late cut-off of B2C and D2C orders and preferential bookings with all major DCs for B2B orders.

“Plus, it will further strengthen our status as a leading 3PL provider in B2B, B2C and D2C fulfilment within the toy, nursery, consumer and fashion sectors.”
